The Branch!

Yesterday we had a picture taken of our funny little Branch. I think this only really happens when a great family is moving away from us. (I think the last picture was right before we lost the Malnar's and Poll's). This time around we are losing the Martinez family. They got a great job offer that would be impossible NOT to take, and so we are really excited for them, but really sad to lose them. Their youngest kids Julie and Diego are in my Primary and I just LOVE them! The oldest kids Shay and Eliza are our favorite babysitters and the kids beg Jon and I to go on dates so they can come and play! Raph and Tamara have been great neighbors and friends and a huge asset to the Branch. We are so sad to see them go, but they will only be an hour away, and we plan on visiting and camping near their new home! Bless the Branch!


First Tooth!

We had a very exciting morning! Sevy has had a loose tooth for a few weeks now. She is really young to actually have a loose tooth (not even 5 yet!) , but the permanent tooth has been coming up too! This morning it was super close, so Jon decided to take it out!

Right before we took it out! She was super excited!
Right after we got it out. You can see the tears! She was a real trooper! We videoed the whole thing, but figured not a lot of people would want to watch! It was fun watching Jon work. My dad used needle-nose pliers. Jon used tweezers and floss. Yeah, I think it would be scary either way you do it! But, Sevy is VERY excited for who's gonna come visit tonight!
In other news: This is for our former Sunnysiders! Here is our building and parking lot. Now, when you turn around, instead of a big lawn and lots of trees you see this:
Oh, yes. That my friends is progress!
The trees are down, the grass is cleared, and by my book, that's a lot more than what has been happening the past years and promises of a new building!
